Teaching Toddlers to Protect the Environment

It's never too early to teach our young children to be conscious about the environment. In fact we should expose them as early as they can comprehend to the idea of protecting the planet that we live in. Afterall, they are the very persons and the generations after them who will benefit from a cleaner and healthier environment that we will create today. My son, like any other toddler likes to imitate a lot. He always wants to do just about anything that he sees I'm doing. I've got quite a bit of house plants around the house and in my garden window. Whenever he sees me watering them, or removing dried leaves he would really insist to do the same. From time to time I encounter unwelcome insects attacking my plants. I use organic soap to get rid of them and not the synthetic chemicals that lingers in and around the house that is bad for the health.

Spring and summer are my two most favorite seasons of all. It's because I can spend more time out in the lawn and get my hands dirty again. My son enjoys doing garden work with me, in fact he has his own garden tools as well. I normally plant different annuals to add to my perennials. I love the beautiful blend of colors they create. But this year, I will try my hand in planting vegetables too like tomatoes. I will buy this organic tomato growing kit that I saw at site. It includes stakes to support the vegetables as they grow and organic solution to kill the garden pests that can harm the vegetable crops. I use organic fertilizer that has the dual function of stimulating growth of the plants and also killing the weeds in the process. It's pays to use organic gardening products that are not only very effective to fight gardening pest problems but also won't harm our environment. I hope to instill in my son the love for gardening and the value of protecting the environment.
